Performance and emission studies on biofuel blended with high oxygen storage capacity nanoparticles using an indirect injection engine


Funder: UKIERI
Duration: 01 January 2015 – 31 March 2016
Staff Involved: Dr P Pimenidou, Dr J Mondol, Dr Y Huang, Prof N Hewitt, Dr N Shah

Working with IIT Guwahati, Ulster and Guwahati developed additives and surface treatments for engines operating with liquid biofuels. Combinations of analysis tools e.g. TGA and FTIR examined post combustion products finding that unburnt hydrocarbons, NOx and CO emissions were almost eliminated.
